Konsep Karya
Hari-hari ini banyak warisan budaya dari masa lalu mengalami perubahan fungsi dan terabaikan karena kita kurang memahami maksud dan tujuan awalnya. Seringkali masyarakat modern hanya melihat suatu artefak budaya dari segi fisiknya, dan mengabaikan nilai-nilai luhur yang terkandung di dalamnya. I Made Djirna berkarya dengan menggali kembali nilai-nilai budaya lama yang telah hilang, namun masih relevan sampai saat ini. Lukisan-lukisannya menghadirkan kembali gambaran dan perlambang roh leluhur, manusia setengah hewan, hewan dan artefak ataupun tempat-tempat yang dianggap suci, seperti gunung, sumber air dan pepohonan yang dipercaya masih memiliki kekuatan pelindung.

Today many cultural heritages from the past have been changed and neglected because we lack of understanding of their original intentions. Modern society often only see a cultural artifact in terms of its physical features, and ignore the noble values contained in it. I Made Djirna works by rediscovering old cultural values that have been lost, but still relevant today. His paintings bring back some images and representations of ancestral spirits, humans, half-animals, animals, artifacts and places that are considered sacred, such as mountains, water sources dan trees that are believed to contain protective forces
